Congress is on its way towards approving new legislation that creates new so-called “hate crimes.”Â  The sentence of someone convicted will increase based on what was in the mind of the accused.  So one is punished once for the crime, and then again for the hate.  Is this reasonable?  I discussed the controversial issue on the radio recently.  Give a listen.
